PokerStars makes the NAPT a reality

by , Jan 6, 2010 | 8:18 am

Several years after it was initially proposed, the NAPT, presented by PokerStars, is now actually happening with Joanna Krupa being their host. The PCA currently taking place in the Bahamas is the first tour stop, with the Venetian holding the first NAPT in the US with a $5,000 Main Event taking place February 20-24 as part of their DeepStack Extravaganza (running against the LA Poker Classic). Their next stop will be held at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut in April, with a series of 20 tournaments with buyins ranging from $200 to a $25,000 “High Roller” event. Their main event will also consist of a $5,000 buyin. More details can be found over at the and this clip from PokerNews:

    I hear they’re having some video problems at PokerNews.

    Now that the “NAPT” is going to be a realality, are the tournaments open to everyone? I know when they announced this back in 2006 it was suppose to be open to only “elite” players and certain criteria had to be met.

    This is a different concept from the original concept of the NAPT, so everyone’s allowed to play.
